Prince Philip’s death at 99, announced today by Buckingham Palace, brings to a close the life of a great countryman.

A keen gameshot throughout his life – with his wife HM the Queen often picking up behind him – he developed the Sandringham shoot into one of the premier wild bird shoots in the country, and a model of conservation. Among its features was the gun bus he designed, with special compartments for guests’ guns built into the coachwork. The 20,000-acre estate is best-known for its Boxing Day shoot, when members of the royal family who enjoy Christmas at Sandringham House go out for a driven pheasant day.

Prince Philip loved deerstalking at Balmoral, grouseshooting, and hunting big game overseas. He also worked hard to promote shooting as the UK’s premier model for conservation. He was a patron of shooting organisation BASC. He was last at BASC’s Marford Mill headquarters in 2010, when he opened the new Duke of Edinburgh Building and met staff, guests and council members.

His work for BASC and his promotion of a living, working countryside made him a target for animal rights activists. One group estimated he shot 30,000 pheasants in his lifetime.

In 2012, Prince Philip was reported to be ‘deeply disappointed’ at being told to give up shooting following a heart scare. Doctors told him to give up his gun as the recoil from it could dislodge a stent they fitted to unblock a coronary artery.

He lived through a time when big game hunters went from national heroes to media villains. In January 1961, he was caught up in the transition. After a three-day hunt with the Maharajah and Maharanee of Jaipur and Prince Jagat-Singh, he shot an 8ft tiger. He also shot a crocodile and six mountain sheep on that trip. It was the photograph of the tiger that outraged British newspapers, so much so that Prince Philip had to pull out of the following day’s hunt, his doctor claiming he had developed a ‘whitlow’ on his trigger finger.
